Hi guys, i have a lenovo computer whith xeon e3 1230v2. I know it not support windows 11 but i install it and run fine. I am worried about MS declarations who say "Not updates" i want to use another security suite diferent to defender. I have emsisoft but it have too many FP in steam games. Do you know about another av whith less fp like Defender?

In my opinion even free, Kaspersky is the best for protection.

Either one, though most users here will say K is better protection-wise.

Windows Defender has been working fine for me in terms of gaming and don't usually deal with many issues. Avast would be my secondary option but I have heard issues pretraining to privacy and there might be more FPs as well.

ESET even sacrifices detection rate to achieve low FP rate.
I disagree. I rather have a slightly higher FP than missed malware or ransomware because detection rate was placed secondary. If you want to game and dont use cracks etc then why use a 3rd party AV at all when MD will do?

At this point it seems highly unlikely that MS will stop updates to unsupported Windows 11 installs.

I would take Bitdefender Free , i don't realy trust K (it sends too much data to other countries) .. even a simple speedtest goes in their lab server;)
But yes protection wise its a very good one (maybe i'll give it another try in the future)
